Our practice has revised many procedures and protocols designed to ensure your safety and well-being while at the office. The protocols begin the moment you arrive at the clinic. The check-in process has been simplified to limit the amount of time you must spend providing personal information upon arrival at our office. Most of the information we need for your examination will be collected during the process of making an appointment with us over the phone.

When You Arrive At Your Appoinment

Please arrive for your appointment no more than five minutes before the time of your scheduled appointment time, as there are limits on the number of people that can be in the clinic at one time. The front entrance will have hand sanitizer for your use, and the staff will ask you to use it upon entering the building. We encourage all patients to enter the office alone unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. Make sure you bring a mask to your appointment. In the case that you do not have one, we will give you one of our brand new masks.

Please note :

Those who enter or remain in our clinic are required to wear a mask covering their nose, mouth, and under their chin for the duration of their visit. Our staff and patrons' safety is our top priority. If necessary, we reserve the right to refuse entry.

You Are Requested To Reschedule Your Appointment If:

You feel sick or are experiencing one or more of these symptoms: fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste.
You have been outside of Tennessee in the past 14 days
You have been in contact with anyone with COVID-19 in the past 14 days
It is strongly recommended that you do not visit our office if you fall into any of these categories. Please contact us to rebook your appointment. We will be happy to accommodate your needs.

What Amplify Chattanooga Is Doing:

It's important to us that we practice social distancing. You are requested to keep a distance of two metres between you and anyone else in the office during your visit. Signs are posted as reminders, and floor decals are available to aid your navigation.
For times when social distancing is not possible (during your eye exam and an eyewear fitting), we have appropriate PPE available to keep you safe and our staff as well as the optometrists. The items include but are not limited to sneeze shields, face shields, safety eyewear, N95 masks, and gloves.

As part of a new healthy, clean and safe disinfection process, we have implemented the following steps:

Before frames are returned to our frame displays, all eyewear that is tried on is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized in a UV sterilization oven.
We have hand sanitizers available throughout the clinic. Patients are asked to wash their hands upon arrival at the office and wear a face mask. Those who do not have masks will be given one. A supply of fresh gloves will also be available for those patients who prefer to wear them.
We have increased the frequency of disinfecting high touch areas (door handles, chair arms, desktops, etc.).
We will continuously sanitize all examination equipment after each patient.
Staff and optometrists should wash their hands frequently, between each patient interaction, and throughout the day.

limiting contact

We will also continue to seek ways to provide you with the same level of service with fewer points of contact. To find out more information, call our office at (423) 710 3965.


Vision therapy is well worth the response, time and effort. Our Son had a hard time focusing and writing neatly. After vision therapy Seth could complete a task in half the time if previously took. His abilities to focus improved greatly and so did his handwriting.

Also, he was better at listening. As a parent, we wanted learning to be fun for our Son, and vision therapy made this possible.

Vision Therapy has given or son the tools he needs to be able to scan and read the written word more effectively and efficiently.

He love working with John and these working sessions give him the motivation to gladly work on his homework assignments.

It amazed us to see the difference in the tracking of his eyes and along a line of it's from the beginning to the end of the treatment.

Dr. McBryar , Kristen and John  are all marvelous and we would recommend them to anyone I only wish that we would have found them sooner!

Prior to coming to the institute for vision development my son complained of daily headaches. Therapy has eliminated his headaches completely. I love knowing my son is able to learn pain-free for the rest of his life because of the work that has been done over just a few weeks in this office. He he absolutely loved coming that didn't even feel like going to a doctor or therapy. We are grateful for the relief he was able to find by coming here.

Thank you!

When we first came to the practice, my son did not have huge issues, but lots of small ones- trouble with reading, sports (hitting the baseball consistently), coordination, etc- that were not easily detectable,but when put together presented issues. The staff here were all very professional and loving towards him. While I was concerned in the reading, my son was concerned with the athletic side. Seeing improvement night off the bat gave him confidence that i have nor seen in him and made him want to not only Come to therapy, but also made him want to work hard. He has surpassed his grade level and above in reading and hit his first home run this year! Thank you!!!
